hour. president obama bounces from one battle ground state to another using ohio as his airline hub. he's using all the hot spots trying to rally his base and any undecided voters he thinks are left. governor romney is also racing against the clock, tweaking his argument. and in case you forgot, we've got more than two guys running on tuesday, tonight we'll break down all of the battles, particularly for congress and who will decide control of it and what the next president can get done. good evening from democracy plaza. it's saturday, november 3, 2012. this is a prime time edition of "the daily rundown." we're taking a look at how we got here. presidential elections that aren't close are actually odd. no republican has gotten more than 300 electoral votes since 1988. only four democrats in history have gotten more than 53% of the vote. bottom line, this is 1976 meets 2000 meets 2004. in other words, it's a very close race. so how did we get here? the president began this campaign weighed down by a troubled economy and still faces a jobless rate higher than any incumbent seeking re-ele

polling average has president obama on top by just half a point. romney isn't as close in the states where the election is going to be decided. in paul rooip's home state of wisconsin, the president leads by an average of more than four points. president obama has kept a stead zi two-point lead in nearby iowa. in ohio the president's lead has not diminished in recent weeks. the obama campaign isn't leaving anything for chance in the buckeye state. he also sate down with my colleague, chris matthews. >> what do you think is going to happen? >> i think we're going to win clearly. i think we're going to win this state, ohio. i've been here 23, 24 days, something like that. i think we're going to win iowa, we're going to win wisconsin. we're going to win informed. we're going to win new hampshire. we have an even chance of winning virginia and florida. it could be a big win. don't just vote. knock on the door of the neighbors. the middle class depends on it. it literally depends on it. >> the vice president took on his latest lie. >> scared the heck out of these people. and it's flat false. th
. >> and with us tonight, folks, thanks for watching. the obama campaign has just released video of the president addressing his staff in chicago. he gets very emotional. it's remarkable video. we'll bring it in just a moment. president obama doesn't have a lot of time to bask in his electoral victory. the fight for the middle class starts right now in congress. the confetti was still on the floor after the celebration in chicago, and house speaker john boehner was already hinting at another major fight in congress over taxes and spending. >> in order to garner republican support for new revenues, the president must be willing to reduce spending and shore up entitlement programs that are the primary drivers. mr. president, this is your moment. we're ready to be led, not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. >> president obama will make a statement tomorrow in the east room. the automatic spending cuts and tax hikes kicked in january 1st if washington can't reach a deal. a lot of people fear it's going to be a repeat of what happened in 2011 when the republicans 4e8d the debt ceiling host
with donors yesterday. according to romney the reason he lost is because obama gave, quote, gifted to various democratic voting blocs. according to "the l.a. times" on a call with donors, romney had this to say -- with the president -- what the president's campaign did was focus certain members of his base coalition, gave them extraordinary financial gifts from the government and worked aggressively to turn them out to vote. romney specifically referenced the african-american community, hispanics and young voters as beneficiaries of obama's large essaying the obama campaign was generous in what they gabe to the groups. according to abc news, romney had this to say about obama's gifts to latino community. what the president did is he gave them two things. one he gave them a big gift on immigration with the dream act and the amnesty program. romney's targeting of the gift takers, african-americans, latinos, young voter is noteworthy giving the gop's problem with african-americans, latinos and young voters. romney said this, quote, with regards to african-american voters, obama care was a huge p
to you for tuning in. tonight's lead. the end of an era. one way to view president obama's big win tuesday night is as a big win for him and the democratic party. but along with that big win for the democrats, tuesday was also a big loss for republicans and for ideas they had been pushing. it's the ronald reagan philosophy. low taxes are the solution to everything. and government is always the problem. >> in this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem. republicans have pummeled that bush on you tuesday, americans by the millions rejected those ideas. on taxes, 60% of voters said they should be increased. clearly the president is wins that argument in the eyes of the country, but not just taxes. voighters said enough of squabbling over the definition of rape. they represented strong female representatives. >> despite the odds, you elected the first woman senator to the state of massachusetts. >> i am well aware that i will have the honor to be wisconsin's first woman u.s. senator. there is no way that clair mccaskill can survive. you
, they are getting dirty. five days to go, president obama's campaigning in three states today. meanwhile, republicans are going ugly. mitt romney is trying everything he can to shake up the race. that is the real story of what is going on in the campaign now. romney's forces are responding to new polls showing president obama leading in swing states. up by six in iowa, up by five in ohio, and ahead in other key states, including new hampshire, be virginia, florida, wisconsin, colorado, and nevada. and today, a major endorsement coming from new york city's independent mayor michael bloomberg. no question, this is a close race but today in wisconsin the president went after one of the key points in governor romney's closing argument to voters. >> the closing weeks of this campaign, governor romney has been using all his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly. and he is offering them change. he's saying he's the candidate of change. well, let me tell you, wisconsin, we know what change looks like. and what the governor is offering sure ai
" and political analyst, our other emmy darling mark halperin. >> america has given president obama a new four-year lease on the house at 1600 pennsylvania avenue. last night, it was the big "o" who had the big mo. >> the president not only won, but won big. >> this shellacking tonight. >> if we look at the electoral results, it looks like a rout. >> source close to the romney campaign summed up their feelings in three words, this one stings. >> the six-round knockout out of nowhere. >> we were sitting in the pumpkin patch waiting for the great pumpkin to rise. never came. >> no. >> as it turned out, no one sing state was crucial for the president with the exception of north carolina, president obama took every single battleground state. the only remaining question is florida which hasn't yet been called and where the president still holds a lead. last night at 12 minutes past 11:00, 12 minutes after obama was first declared the winner in 2008 the president clenched ohio and with it re-election. but a few were too shocked to believe it. >> all i'm saying is, is that look, we've had one instanc
of those elections we will think back and look at for years. a critical influkz point. >> president obama is on top by just half a point. romney isn't as close in the states where the election is going to be decided. in paul ryan's home state of wisconsin, the president leads by an average of more than 4 points. president obama has kept a steady two-point lead in nearby iowa. in the most important state, ohio, the president's lead has not diminished in recent week. he maintains a three-point lead. the obama campaign isn't leaving anything for chan in the buckeye state. vice president joe biden was in cleveland, that area today. he also sat down with my colleague, chris matthews. >> what do you think's going to happen? >> i think that we're going to win. i don't think it's going to be close for the electoral college. i think we're going to win clearly and i think you're going to see we're going to win this state ohio. i've been here 23 days, something like that. i think we're going to win iowa, wisconsin, we're going to win nevada, we're going to win new hampshire. i think we've got an eve
-perry. you already know the big news of the week. on tuesday night barack obama was once again elected president of the united states. but this year's party in chicago had nothing on 2008. back then more than a quarter million people crowded into grant park. mother nature even seemed sure of the outcome offering up an unbelievably warm 60 degree chicago night and the place was crowded with more black vips than the ethnic music festival. this year was more modest. a single podium draped with a touch of bunting, a far more typical cold, gray november day greeted the just about 10,000 supporters who found their way into chicago's unremarkable mckorm make place convention center. there was hugging, dancing, but the tears were more from relieve than inspired awe. be careful because if you decode this election night on the optics alone, you will believe them to be more different than they really are. despite a two-year halt in legislative accomplishments brought on by a recalcitrant republican party, an anemic economy, and a bruising campaign that lacked the historical fervor of the first, p
for president obama. he ended his campaign in iowa, the state that delivered him his first victory in 2008. he and his campaign advisers have been doing a lot of reminiscing. they're also engaging in a lot of get out the vote efforts. president obama stopping by an obama campaign office as well today, tamron, urging them to make as many phone calls as they can. the obama campaign feels as though this race rests on turnout. they feel confident about their get out of the vote strategy. it's something they've been working on for the past 18 months, and their goal is to bring together that coalition that delivered the president victory back in 2008. that winning coalition included african-americans, latinos, as well as young voters, of course, who are key to that. we talked about the nostalgia, tamron, that president obama and his campaign are feeling right now. one of the president election day traditions is to play a basketball game with closest friends and advisers. i'm told that e-mailed former body man reggie love last week and asked him to set that game up. that will take place later on this
on the brink. >> president obama is dealing with the looming fiscal cliff. >> that could send the country into a recession. >> that is the issue. >> people are sick of the gridlock. >> we are not as divided as our politics suggest. >> we can seize the feature together. >> you have speaker boehner. >> let's do the right thing together for our country. >> you have to do this. >> i have never been more hopeful about our future. >> i know a lot of you are already on my side. >> i have two strong words for you. >> fiscal cliff. >> come on. >> oh, okay. all right. >> the fiscal cliff clock ticks on. >> it was the most expensive political election in history. >> a big, fat, zero. >> some soul searching about the feature future of the party. >> you think i do this night after night for your amusement? >> how do you repay me? >> four more years of hope and change. >> today republican ares battled with republicaned over why they lost an election they were sure they were supposed to win. we know they will never figure it out. today was the president's first full day at the white house. >> in the com
, chris. and thanks to you for tuning in. two big stories tonight. first, president obama takes a tough stand over tacks. he delivered a wake-up call to republicans that he is determined to make the wealthy pay their fair share in tacks. the other big story, director david and after being married for and petraeus and unacceptable both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours. this afternoon, the president graciously accepted my resignation. general petraeus was the most accepted leader of his generation. he's been top commander of both wars in iraq and afghanistan. president obama nominated him as the director of the cia last year. his fall is a major challenge for the president just three days after the election and a shake-up to the security team just as he deals with the attacks in libya, tensions with iran and the end of the war in afghanistan. joining me now is nbc chief foreign correspondent richard engel, jack jacobs, an msnbc policy analyst and carl bernstein, the legendary analyst now a contributor to the daily beast. thank you all for joining me tonight.
together. >> maybe not initially, as "the new york times" reports, after his speech, mr. obama tried to call both mr. boehner and the senator republican leader, mitch mcconnell but was told they were asleep. >> wake them up, for goodness sake. >> he is the president. >> wake him up. >> yesterday, yesterday, senate majority leader harry reid struck a tone of cautious optimism. >> it's better to dance than to fight. it's bettor work together. i want to work together but i want everyone to also understand, you can't push us around. >> hours later there was some reason for hope. the word revenue which speaker boehner used 15 times in a 12-minute press conference and not always in a completely negative context. >> the news via tax reform. we're willing to accept new revenue under the right conditions. republicans have signaled a willingness to accept new revenue. if it comes from growth and reform. >> has boehner opened the door to compromise and extended an actual olive branch. he alluded to the grand bargain that slipped away a year ago. >> closer to the critical mass needed legislative
to get those state by state results. some that hit me. obama, the champ, was not just hold his own, he was winning. then the long rounds where he kept it up. i saw this happen last night because i never saw it coming. i saw romney's big win in the first debate. i saw the president's sterling bipartisan work on tropical storm sandy. i never saw what came about last night, this powerful swing of support to the president. not just him but his party in senate races across the country. our question tonight, what happened? but i can't begin our usual political discussion tonight without a strong sad personal note. i was on last night for ten hours straight from 5:00 in the evening till 3:00 in the morning. a few minutes to 3:00 i said something terrible. i said that i was glad about the coming of tropical storm sandy because of its impact on this national campaign. it was a terrible thing to say, period. i can say it was because i was tired but the fact is i wasn't thinking of the horrible mess this storm has made of people's lives up here in new york and elsewhere. it's not until you read t
. and ignore their tea party dead enders. president obama is healthy. he's planning a national campaign to rally support for his vision of fairness. the same vision that american voted for on election day. he'll take his message beyond the beltway asking the public to pressure republicans back in washington about raising taxes on the rich. some in the gop know they lost badly and are starting to deal with it. conservative pundit bill crystal surprised a lot of people when he went on fox news and started talking sense. >> it won't kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires. i don't understand why republicans don't take obama's offer to freeze taxes for everyone below $250,000, make it a million. really republican party going to fall on on a bunch of millionaires? >> it won't kill the country? take the president's offer? that almost sounds rational. and now some republicans in congress are also admitting they need to compromise. but not all conservatives are able to handle the new reality. in fact, some are beginning to lose it. for years grover norquist has been bull
says obama bought the election. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. you'd have thought that mitt romney would have stopped this crap. during the campaign he was out there selling it, that president obama was buying black votes by dumping the work requirement for welfare. remember that little sugar plum? it had it all, the accusation that minority voters could be scarfed up with a little chump change. throw them a little something and the votes would come pouring back. here he was yesterday, romney, schmoozing with his donor base about how the whole thing went wrong. it seems the president did a little wholesale purchasing, he said. he bought the minority with health care and bought the students with free student loans. great work there, mitt. you're at it again with your double barrels. one, claims that aren't true, and, two, that old dog whistle of yours. fact. people in the income bracket you mentioned have to kick in to get health care. fact, students still have to play interest on their college loan.
that will happen in washington is we are going to start learning which senior members of the obama administration really only wanted to serve one term. is hillary clinton going to leave as secretary of state? is eric holder going to leave as attorney general? mr. geithner going to leave as secretary of treasury? the speculation is officially hot and heavy in washington as to who will stay on, who will leave and, of course, who will get the jobs of the people who do leave. everybody in washington is also now figuring out how they are going to work with president obama for another four years. how the politics of him earning a second term affects what he wants to do and how likely it is he is going to be able to do it. it probably was not an auspicious sign for that process when the president, right after his victory speech on tuesday night, right after he was done speak, as soon as he was done speaking, the night he wins a second term, after he gave that speech, he got on the phone and he tried to call the republican leader in the house and the republican leader in the senate, he tried to call john
percentage steadily is rising. here is how the 2012 election broke down by racial group. president obama won just 39% of the white vote down from 49% 43% last time, but he outperforms by so much in other demographic groups, he overcomes the white voter deficit. obama got 93% of the black vote on tuesday, 71% of the latino vote. by the way, that's a big difference from the way "w" did it. "w" did pretty well among latino voters, and he got 73% of the asian vote. bob shrum, i want to start with this. we all know looking around and who we know, the country is changing. a lot more people moving to this country from the south, less so from europe, more from asia, south asia, india, pakistan, from the far east, the asian pacific. this country is getting to be more like the world. >> i think part of the tea party reaction, the give our country back or take our country back, is a reflection of people's paranoia about the changing composition of the country. we're going to become a majority nonwhite nation. white men are now only 33% of the electorate, and that's the heart of republican strength. wha
's it. >> no barack obama! >> if it's obama, america wins. if it's romney, comedy wins. >> senator grassley, have you hit a big deer lately? the deer didn't make it, but was it delicious? >> i love you back, and we've got more work to do. >> one more year! one more year! >> never imagine such a thing as funny. president obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans. never imagine such a thing as funny. i'm not particular precisely of what i said but i stand by whatever i said, whatever it was. >> we are closing in on the final 48 hours of this campaign. the president is speaking live in debuk, iowa, his third of four stops today. and with him and his challenger in a frenzied sprint to win voters in those crucial battleground states. for the president that means shoring up support in the midwest states that backed him with great enthusiasm in 2008. with events in iowa, ohio, and wisconsin already today. and it was in the key battleground ohio that the president lambasted his challenger's latest effort to seize the medal of change. >> governor romney, he is a very talented s
a deal." mr. obama should hang tough declaring himself willing if necessary to hold his ground even at the cost of letting his opponents inflict damage on a shaky economy. stand your ground and don't give in to threats. no deal is better than a bad deal. ruth, who is going to blink? >> i hope it really doesn't get to that. paul krugman has a nobel prize in economics and i don't. but it doesn't all hit at once. but a lot of it hits and the damage to the sort of animal spirits of the economy, the confidence of business leaders in the economy, the confidence of other countries in our ability to get our economic fiscal house in order would be damaging. so no deal is a very bad deal for the united states. somebody is going to blink in the end. i hope it's actually both sides to some extent. but the argument that you're hearing from some sectors of the democratic party that going over the fiscal cliff isn't such a bad thing, i'm not with that argument because i think you go over the cliff and you don't have a rip cord and your parachute doesn't open and boom. >> when you look at the numbe
>> the turnout operation by team obama, incredible. just remarkable. doing that much better the second time around than the first time? they beat back the tides of history and made history. >>> all right if it's way too early, mike, what time is it? >> time for "morning joe" but right now it is time for our old pal chuck todd with all the latest. >>> back to business. president obama back in washington. guess what? nobody's wasting any time trying to find a way to avoid the fiscal cliff dive. republican leaders on capitol hill sound like there's some deal making to be had had but will they end up on agreeing to just put it off for a few more months? >>> plus wlab do, what does a b dollars get you these days? it cranked out a ton of tv ads for the super pacs on both sides but was it all worth it in the end? we'll do a little autopsy on that. >>> cookie monster. new details on how the obama campaign's victory was driven by what's proving to be the most intensive online data mining operation in the history of political campaigning. >>> good morning from washington. it's about 1
>>> good morning. president obama will be back on the campaign trail next hour for the first time since hurricane sandy hit. mitt romney has an event starting any minute now in roanoke, virginia. and we'll wait to see today's tone on the campaign trail, but it's been noticeably softer from romney since the storm. now, we continue to see absolutely devastating pictures from sandy. 74 people are now dead. 5 million still without power. this morning, president obama was briefed again on the situation by fema officials. yesterday, he spent four hours touring the damage and meeting with people in new jersey. in an emotional moment, a marina owner came to him in tears. he promised her she's going to get the help she needs. >> we are with here for you. and we will not forget. we will follow up to make sure that you get all the help that you need until you've rebuilt. >> well, it's unprecedented timing. this is all happening just five days before the election. the latest round of nbc news wall street journal polls show the president leading in iowa, wisconsin, and new hampshire. but it is
for combat, barack obama takes the felt against the very forces who fought to cut him down. he will be a democratic president. he will be fair on tacks. he will use those taxes to rebuild this country and educate it up to the tough competition we face in the 21st century. he's backed by a majority of the american people, indeed re-elects as the only democrat with the civil war with two majority elections behind him with an undergraded mandate at his back. today he marched on to the field of combat against an uncertain foe. some ready to deal, others hiding in their bunkers waiting for something, anything, to save them from the terrifying sight of 25 2 1st century electoral reality. i'm joined by dee dee myers, former clinton white house press secretary and david corn, the author of the ebook, 47 percent. today the president stressed he's willing to compromise to avoid the consequence of going over that so-called fiscal cliff at the end of the year. however, he said he's stigeing to his guns, that the wealthiest need to be asked to pay a bit more. let's watch. >> i want to be cl
. president obama has won a second term in the white house. >> what? you're kidding me. >> this is huge. go ahead. >> around 11:15 last night, the networks put the biggest swing state of the election, ohio, in the president's column. pushing him over the 270 electoral vote threshold. and at this hour, the president has 303 electoral college votes to mitt romney's 206. florida, and my friends, my mustache-loving friends, this is important. florida is the only swing state yet to be called. >> oh, god. he's texting me right now. >> axelrod's texting u ining us now. >> this is what he says. >> if romney loses florida and north carolina. what's he saying? >> he says a deal's a deal. >> a deal's a deal. >> and that he can't do the show today. he wants to come in thursday when florida will be in and he can enforce the bet. that's gross. >> you're in trouble, by the way. >> what do i do? >> you're going to look awful. >> the vote that's still out does not bode well for your mustache. >> you're saying it's not northwest florida? >> it's not the panhandle. >> let it be said, or the rest of us. >> thu
government. what do you mean? >> i mean that when president obama took office, we had just experienced, if we can think back on it, a profound failure of both government and elite institutions from iraq, foreign policy to finances to the response to hurricane katrina. what president obama did when he came into office was strongly and unapologetically assert the government's role in dealing with our problems. in a wide array of markets. the insurance market, the car market, small businesses, tax reform. he did that at great personal, political risk. and what he got back in return was, a very strong attack on the notion that we're in this together and that government has a role to play. first in the grass roots of the tea party on the ground and then in the air in what you documented, martin, and what the audience knows, one of the most well-funded attacks in the history of american politics. what i think happened last night is more than just a re-election of barack obama as a man that people trust to lead our country, which is, i think, good. i think something deeper happened. i think there wa
